Indore, Jan 5: Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, who on Jan 4 inaugurated seven Wi-Fi hostspots of BSNL in Madhya Pradesh, said the government was constantly endeavouring to improve the condition of the public sector telecom firm.

She chaired a meeting hosted by BSNL chairman and MD Anupam Shrivastava here, in which several MPs from the state were also present, said G C Pandey, General Manager of the MP circle of BSNL.


One of the Wi-Fi hospots inaugurated by the Speaker is at Potlod village in Indore district which she has adopted under the Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojna.

At the meeting with top officers of BSNL and the MPs, Mahajan said, "BSNL plays an important role in the telecom sector of the country. The government is taking every necessary step to improve its condition."

Kantilal Bhuria, Congress MP from Jhabua-Ratlam, told reporters afterwards that he raised the issue of poor BSNL network in the state at the meeting.

"It was harming BSNL's image, and a collusion between its officers and the private telecom operators may be responsible for this," he said.
